creator, ground-breaker, fresh, child-like, innocent, nurturing, ability
to be in the moment, dreamer, little material concerns, courage and
born on the first day of the 20 Mayan day signs makes you an initiator, a
groundbreaker. You very much still are living in oneness and you have the
wonderful gift of staying in this moment, without concern about past or future.
You are still linked with primordial energies which lie beyond the mundane.
Although you are a creator and sparkle with new ideas you are more of a
dreamer. You are lacking the desire to succeed in materialistic
accomplishments, challenged to follow a project through to completion. You own
outstanding courage and strength. But you also are a very vulnerable soul,
childlike and innocent. You relate to the world mainly through your feelings.
As a friend or a parent you can be very nurturing. Be aware not to act
overprotective or dominating. Sorting things out by rational mind is not your
strongest point, you tend to ignore unpleasant subjects until a crisis occurs.
Then you can act quite reactive and unreasonable. Learn to reflect immediately.
Speaking up or keeping a diary will help you recognize your issues and
stumbling blocks. You will find balance in your life by creating your own home
or owning your own business. Give yourself some quiet time in natural spaces,
away from the crowds - nature is rejuvenating and healing. Communicate your
truth and share your dreams. The universe will provide everything for you - but
you need to allow for it!
Follow a project through to completion. Rational mind is not your strongest
point, you tend to ignore unpleasant subjects until a crisis occurs.
Then you can act quite reactive and unreasonable. Release judgements
and limitations; learn to reflect immediately. Trust life and communicate!
Beware not to overprotect or dominate others.

appear contradictory, inconsistent of even unreliable, unpredictable
and sudden. You hear the call of the unknown. Expansion, learning &
teaching, travel, movement. Powerful mind, thirst to understand. You
are an idealist, very sensitive and highly appreciating the aesthetic
side of life.

surface. Disperse rigid ideals of perfection. Connect with your feelings
and emotions - your sensitivity and psychic abilities. Move from being
a spectator and choose to become a participant. Your fickle nature will

# 3 Dream-spell: Blue Night belonging
to the earth family that feels
Saturn Finger/Toe: Right ring finger
TO DREAM - POWER: ABUNDANCE - ESSENCE:
is symbolized by the dawn, the coming together of the old and the new,
of darkness and light - a creative and destructive place both. Home
and family are important, a sheltered space and secure foundations,
a protection from life's many dangers and inconsistencies - enclosing
you like a womb. You are a private and reclusive person. There is a
sacred place within yourself that can't be shared with anybody - your
inner sanctum. This makes you appear aloof and could cause problems
in close relationships. You have great respect for tradition and history
and you are tempted to stick with conventional solutions, only ready
to let go of rigid attitudes during major crisis. You enjoy appearing
inaccessible, mysterious and unknowable. Logical and systematic you
enjoy solving problems. Akbal gives incredible endurance to actualize
your goals, no matter how long it will take.
Trials are the gateways to spiritual treasures. In search for the innermost
light the perils of the soul have to be faced, confronting all kinds
of fears. Light is found at the very core of darkness. Dare to go with
adventures, diving into the unknown. Open yourself to revelations and

TO TARGET - POWER: FLOWERING - ESSENCE: AWARENESS
individual, acting out of an instinctual, primal wholeness - unique
in expressions and full of seeds - hidden potentials to grow new life.
In the beginning just dreams, ideas and plans - plant them, give them
away to the fertile soil, allow life force and light to break their
shell, give them a chance to germinate. Don't wait for the perfect time
or place to cast your seeds away. Live life as a dancer, a musician
or a mischief. You have a fiery nature and a lot of deep and strong
physical energy. Outdoor activities are balancing your mental pursuits
and interests. Sexuality is of great importance, giving you an outlet
for all the primal energy roaring within. Trust your intention in the
now and take the first step towards fulfilling yourself. Deep down you
are very serious about life. You own powerful senses and you often operate
on instinct, on auto-pilot. You are very receptive, reacting quickly,
catching opportunities and making contact to the right people. You are
a strong thinker, diving deep into intricate subjects like science,
philosophy or metaphysics. Your success is based on patient effort,
daily routine, strong dedication and commitment. You don't care so much
about other people's opinions and you are far from compromising yourself
in any way. You have a strong desire to appear in public and you show
a natural talent for leadership. You are competent and outstanding in
whatever you choose to do. You attract wealth and good fortune.
Concerned with safety, there is the tendency to hold on to your energies,
thinking you have to unfold your life. This egotistical point
of view leads towards depression and hopelessness. Show your true temper,
be light-hearted and enthusiastic. Dive deeply into sexuality, pass
through all kinds of obsessions, and face upcoming problems and confusions.
You crave for challenges and crisis in order to heal the split between
mind and body. Come down from your head, center within the fire of your
heart, allow it to burn away conditionings and limitations.
CHICCHAN: (pronounced: cheek'chan ) - The
Celestial Snake, The Serpent .
# 5 Dream-spell: Red Serpent belonging to the earth family that receives
Asteroid belt Finger/Toe: big right toe
TO SURVIVE - POWER: LIFEFORCE - ESSENCE:
willed and charismatic you can embody the highest and the lowest forms
of existence. Rising to the highest you will transmit light and truth
- embodying spiritual ideas. Falling into the Underworld you might represent
the poisonous snake diving into excesses. You can draw and hold attention,
you radiate a mysterious and secretive aura and you can be quite dramatic.
You know the knack of getting attention, but you're rarely understood.
Although delighting in public focus you are a solitary being, enjoying
privacy and seclusion, thinking in terms of "I" instead of
"we". Harmonized and balanced within yourself you attract
others instead of repulsing them. Only then will you be able to use
your high intelligence in constructive ways, transforming your instinctual
wisdom, developing healing powers, accessing sorcery and witchcraft.
You own powerful emotions, which are challenging you to look deeply
into unsolved inner conflicts. These emotional tides can be dramatically
intense, for yourself and for the people close to you. Your penetrating
psychic energy is at times intrusive. Internalize feelings and learn
to express anger in constructive ways. Unless you really gather the
courage to face fear and emotional upheaval again and again you will
fall into paralyzed states of indecision. By refusing to take responsibility
the universe makes decisions by default, leaving you unhappy; trapped
within your own life - even more so because personal freedom means a
lot to you. Sensual pleasures and survival instincts stimulate your
primal awareness, activating your intuitive wisdom. Don't rely too much
on hearing and seeing. These senses may fragment and distort your intuition,
enticing you to start reasoning. Connecting with touch, smell and taste
brings you to the present moment, aligns you with instinctual wisdom.

ACTION: TO EQUALIZE - POWER: DEATH - ESSENCE: OPPORTUNITY
of forgiveness, a very lucky day to be born on. After having quenched
all physical needs there comes the challenge to extend consciousness,
encompassing the mysteries of death, awakening to limitlessness. Cimi
is dedicated to deep inquiry, ready to look inside. Passing through
periods of solitude, turning points are experienced. A close encounter
with death might create a sacred wound within you. Allow pain – it's
a blessing in disguise, it will boost your transforming process. In
the light of life's immense questions, religion and metaphysics might
help building faith and trust. Pushing understanding beyond the limits
of intellect reveals the mysterious, opens the doors to the nonphysical
world of spirit. When polarities are dissolving, true inner wisdom is
generated. Cimi cooperates well with others, having great dedication
for community and partnership. Deep inside there is a strong sense of
obligation towards humanity as a whole - you are a living sample of
true sister- and brotherhood, feeling great compassion for all the suffering
Preoccupied with helping you often forget caring for yourself. Remember:
you can love others only as much as you are able to love yourself! True
giving will come out of abundance, when overflowing your riches are
shared naturally. So be generous and compassionate with yourself first.
a perfectionist you take life very serious. You are gracious, and yet
reluctant to share your core feelings. Although capable, you don't feel
like leading others, preferring to contribute behind the scenes. In
partnership you are torn toward strong individuals, tending to conform,
wanting to fit the cast, almost neglecting your own personality – to
the point of playing the passive role of a victim. There is no need
to sway dynamics covertly from behind the scenes to get the results
on transitoriness and you will realize that death doesn't mean destruction;
but liberation, reconnecting the limited self with universal consciousness.

work or sports are empowering. You are very sensual - appreciating eating
and sexual pleasures. You own a strong sense for aesthetics and
artistic talents, especially a strong sense of rhythm. You love dancing
and body movement.
Deriving security from close relationships you have to learn being more
comfortable with your own individuality. In fact, you are an incomparable
individualist. Give yourself the personal freedom to roam around - be
just yourself, a wanderer or world-traveler. Be aware not to get too
much identified with certain perspectives, don't get confined to certain
ideals and roles. Playfulness and versatility are loosening up tensions,
opening you to this moment - attuning you to your heart! Manik symbolizes
sacred rhythms of life, the rhythms of giving and taking. Often you

LAMAT: (pronounced: la mat' ) - The Venus-Star,
# 8 Dream-spell: Yellow Star belonging
to the earth family that feels
Venus Finger/Toe: Right ring toe
TO BEAUTIFY - POWER: ELEGANCE -
vibrates with perfectionism, beauty, elegance, ingenuity – exclusive
taste, unique ideas and visions. You own an extremely intelligent and
complex mind and you're constantly living on razor's edge of getting
lost in its labyrinth. Always busy doing something or other your intense
and nervous energy often lacks focus. Deeply ingrained habits, which
are structuring your life - are tending to become ruts. So knowing this,
create positive routines that generate order and rhythm, assisting you
in bringing your high values down to earth. To bring your fast spinning
electric energy down to Earth you need physical activity, rooting you
within existence. <With roots and wings>, as Zen people say, you
will stay in touch with the multidimensional universe, ready to face
changing winds. Often you try to figure out your purpose. Quit trying
so hard - just be. Dive into this moment - invest your total being into
the now. Follow your heart, not your mind! You are a graceful being
and you have a harmoniously glowing aura around yourself, which others
easily can get deceived by! That means, you're not all that tender and
sweet as it may look from without. Actually you enjoy challenge and
opposition and love a good fight. Knowingly or unknowingly you take
great risks, even in order to create situations of adversity. You thrive
on strong attention.
You've got life energy in abundance. Being a strong thinker this untamedenergy
could get stuck within your brain, causing endless circles of thoughts,
which might even lead to symptoms of paranoia and craziness. The key
is redirecting this exuberant energy from your head down into your whole
body. Sports, martial arts, dance or exercise (active meditation techniques)
are some of the options to ground your energy back to Earth, completing
the circuit. Bring more consciousness to your breath.You are greatly
influenced by others' opinions. So for the purpose of self-protection
you tend to get over-opinionated, so much so that you might loose overall
perspective. Stay flexible, adapt your views in accord with a constantly
changing universe. Make it an everyday practice to look at life afresh,
unwind your mind, make room for the new and unexpected - break old habits
of being and thinking. There is more then one way to accomplish your
goals. It is crucial to harmonize your own energies, your thoughts and
ideas. Then you won't end up in tense and disharmonious settings, finding
more positive outlets for feisty oppositions and debates. Connecting
with your heart will help resonate more positively with other people
and their ideas. Once your self-confidence has stabilized you become
capable of completing large projects.
MULUC: (pronounced: moo' look ) - The Changing
Moon, The Universal Water .
# 9 Dream-spell: Red Moon belonging
to the earth family that anchors
Mercury Finger/toe: Right pinky toe
TO PURIFY - POWER: UNIVERSAL WATER - ESSENCE:
are part of an infinite ocean, deeply interconnected with all beings.
Powerful emotions are expressing through you. Whatever you do originates
in your intense feelings. You are impressible, changeable and flexible
- able to adapt to any situation you're put in. Definitely not moderate,
one could call you exorbitant or even excessive. "All or nothing"
is your principle. You might show instinctual and domineering manners
and you are not attempting to appear sophisticated at all. Once you
have decided to engage yourself for something you do it whole-heartedly
with your total dedication. You live very much in the moment and you
are aware - always ready to change course if the situation demands to.
You show intense behavior and bizarre interests. Unless you have heard
your inner call and found your mission it is very hard for you to gain
stability and containment. You need a form, a structure - something
or somebody giving you boundaries and self-discipline. You like to be
involved with others. You can be incredible giving and reliable - an
appreciated member of a team. You have absorbed some quite strong conditionings
from your mother's role model. If you were lucky you have got positive
imprints. Then leadership and responsiveness will be your natural gifts.
Otherwise you still might have to become more easy with sharing and
giving. However, bringing light into your childhood will reveal many
lost keys. You have a good connection to your unconscious self, and
once your channels are clear transmission between different dimensions
will become natural. You rely on your power of discernment and your
sharp mind pierces through problems quickly. Being independent and highly
individualistic, you make a natural performer of great authenticity.
You draw and create from the brilliance of your inner being, able to
stir the souls of your audience.
Challenge: Your greatest challenge is taking responsibility for your own
life, understanding that you are attracting certain energies; drawing
in particular experiences in order to grow stronger and become more
mature. Besides that, recognize your limits - don't take on too much.
Step back of being overcritical, there is no need to grumble and complain.
Rather allow yourself to shine your light to the world. Take the risk
and expose your truth. Master shyness and over-sensitivity. Share your
dreams and powerful imaginations - discover your charisma. Trust in
your instincts and your inner guidance. You have all the keys to embrace
this moment. And within this moment the whole eternity will be found.
OC: (pronounced: oak' ) -
The Loyal Heart, The Dog.
# 10 Dream-spell: White Dog belonging to the earth family that receives
Mercury Finger/toe: Left thumb
TO LOVE - POWER: HEART - ESSENCE:
dog is a highly evolved animal. He is guiding you on your inner journey
through the Underworld. His fire of faith provides the light to walk
through <the dark night of the soul>, the process of integrating
your unconscious self. You own a complex consciousness based on high
sensibility, strong senses and a good intuition. You trust yourself
and you know the knack of enjoying life. Your desires are directly generated
by your sensual awareness - smelling, feeling, seeing and hearing. Your
aims to fulfill basic needs are pure and simple longings for comfort
and well being. Recognizing your own desires alerts you to the surroundings
and to others' desires as well. You are warmhearted, sociable and a
devoted companion. Mainly fortunate and happy you make a generous and
dedicated friend, always willing to help out if asked for favors. You
are a good team player and if needed you excel as a courageous and charismatic
leader. Regardless of your social position, you are the heart of your
tribe, inspiring loyalty in others. You enjoy the limelight, have many
creative talents (creative arts, communication) and you love travelling.
respect the ideal of family highly. As a child you strongly asked for
your parents' approval, delegating important life decisions. While you
admired your father and lived up to his standards you were ignoring
your own needs. Developing your own personality you had to free yourself
from this predominance. You started reacting, rebelling against any
control and influence you had allowed your family to have over you.
Still you might carry some old resentment for lacking material or emotional
support. Once you can understand your parents' limitations you will
have made peace with them. You're an idealist and you can get quite
fixed on certain beliefs. Loyalty to ideas can narrow your vision, blinding
you for the many colors and shapes truth can have. Your life is full
of dramas and you're challenged to just witness them. Look without evaluation
and you will find the positive intent. Tune into your heart
and its sacred rhythms. You are inter-connected with all existence.
Allow trust arising and you will know that you're never alone.
Challenge: You are the boss and you are defending your territory. Unconsciously
you assume deserving more then the others - you have double standards,
with one set of rules for yourself and another for your partner. Strong
negative emotions like jealousy and possessiveness are simply reflections
of your incapability of loving yourself. Dare to look into your hidden
wounds and unresolved conflicts. Learn to walk in the other's shoes
and see from their perspective. Working towards emotional integrity
and finding compassion within your heart are the most important issues
of your life's journey.
CHUEN: (pronounced: chu' wen ) - The Power of
Illusion, The Monkey .
# 11 Dream-spell: Blue Monkey belonging to the earth family that speaks
Venus Finger/toe: Left index finger
TO PLAY - POWER: MAGIC - ESSENCE:
different levels of consciousness are meeting within you - one is sensual,
untamed and wild, the other one is more evolved, sensitive and perceptive
for future outcomes. Their balanced union generates creativity and the
delight to play. Intuitively you know that life is a divine drama, leela . You are an illusionist, a gambler; playing your favorite role
- the hero or the heroine. It's all a divine joke anyway - so, let's
have fun! You are curious, loving interesting and dramatic situations
to the point of obsession.
and playfulness are your big gifts to the world. You got the magical
elixir to break through the dramas of others. Your laughter brings light
into life. You play "life", breaking down the rigid structures
of society, bringing relief from harsh reality. But be aware, ridiculing
can also mean downplaying serious inner conflicts. Laughing can be a
denial, avoidance of feeling the pain of your inner wounds.
would like to get public attention. Chuen is a born performer - creative
excellence is your spiritual path. Born on the day of the "masters
of all the arts" you do well as an artist, artisan or a crafts-man.
Or, you might magnify life into a weekday soap opera, indulging in gossip
or inflicting havoc. You definitely know the knack of getting attention.
Not a follower of any kind you're either independent or a leader - preferring
leadership because of increased attention. You are very curious, intelligent
and adaptable. You learn quickly, but often abandoning a project or
intention before completion. You are managing your own promotion - this
is viewed as funny, charming or even glamorous. Inner insecurity keeps
you concerned about your reputation, you require constant reassurance
about your efficacy. In close relationships you prefer to remain emotionally
distant and aloof. You are not comfortable with strong feelings. Others
are influencing you so much already, so you get afraid of losing your
center. Close relationships want you to cut away facades and false fronts.
Challenge: Your challenge is to find the balance between fun and play, responsibility
and work. Not caring about obligations and commitments could lead to
deterioration of your social and economic foundations. Disguised as
a two-sided mirror you are not able to see yourself but only the reflection
of what is around you. Your play becomes so all-embracing that you can't
see your true self. The danger is to get lost in the world of personality,
over-reaching egotism and pride are the pitfalls. Meditate on the koan "what is real?". Don't get identified with your role,
step back, watch the cosmic play unfolding through you. Get immersed
with deeper layers of your being to discover your true self. Move with
the challenge, seize the illusion; become a true, authentic human being.

and polishing your being. Use all the challenges for reawakening, continually
becoming stronger - approaching your destiny.

state of ignorance when others are violating your boundaries. Afraid
of rejection and criticism you have a hard time drawing the line. Your
emotions are very fragile and you can get hurt easily on deep levels.
Allow others to see when you're upset, learn to release negative emotions.

individual beings. You know about this interconnectedness and beneficial
support, deeply devoted to your family or clan. It is your responsibility
though to find your place within this net of mutual subsistence. Ben
also symbolizes the central pillar of the World-Tree, a source of integrity
and genuine vision, radiating authority. You are ahead of your time,
full of potent ideas - a crusader for new and broader horizons. You
are a loner, like a barren red rock spire reaching for the sky, centered
within yourself. You are self-contained, neutral and aloof from strong
feelings. You are an example of confidence and personal integrity. You
own deep ethic principles and will stand your ground in the face of
opposition. You take command of your talents and make a success of anything
you put your mind to. You are capable of intense, hard work and extremely
disciplined if necessary. You are highly intellectual and most probably
well educated. You are a natural leader, having a good instinct for
reading others' characters, also understanding their positions on important

intentions, combined with an ambitious nature. The expansive unlimited
energy of wide-open spaces in nature is enriching your being. Traveling,
hiking - or even journeying into the unknown - allows you to explore
expanded perspectives, broadening your horizon.
Challenge : You tend to be opinionated, intellectually rigid and prone to
argument when confronted. You can be an extremist and may have a propensity
for excess, resulting in imbalance, getting burned-out or lost in destructive
obsessions. Loosen up rigid attitudes and develop good social skills.

TO ENCHANT - POWER: TIMELESSNESS - ESSENCE: RECEPTIVITY
are a very sensitive being, needing lots of privacy. You are gifted
with many psychic skills. Challenged to develop these abilities you
first have to penetrate and dissolve your inner darkness. As long as
you try to draw personal profits - taking advantage form your special
gifts - you will get entangled in struggles and suffer through co-dependent
relationships. You have to allow the divine working through you, learning
to step back as an ego. Your growth process will confront you with all
kinds of temptations and naturally you will fall back many times. In
relationships you connect on deep levels, intertwining your energy and
getting caught in many ties and obligations. These experiences give
you profound insights into the human psyche. When your telepathic skills
are emerging you will make a great counselor, therapist or healer. You
can read people intuitively, connect on deep levels and explore the
hidden. You're doing well educating and developing counseling skills,
merging your mental and psychic abilities. You can expand your mind
and alter consciousness. You can be quite aggressive, fiercely dedicated
to achieve your goals. But you avoid direct confrontations. Rather cutting
and sarcastic you are rarely coming right out to say what you think.
You are courageous, daring, forceful and proud. If still restricted
and enslaved by your ego you can be conceited, mercenary and tyrannical.
You are a good planner and investigator. Fighting for just causes gives
you a stage to use your power, stealth and sense for strategy. You own
strong imagination, you are a good communicator and you might get attempted
to impose your views on others. You feel great devotion for the sacred
and the spiritual realms.
Challenge: Move down from your head into your heart - surrender to existence
and become a channel for divine forces. At the core of your heart you
will feel oneness with the whole cosmos. Compassion will soften your
intensity. Balance and harmonize complex relationships and release your
need for approval. You already are the magician! Tune into the silent
center of your being. Become a transmitter of light and clarity. All
the answers are there - within you !

private. But you can be quite dramatic as well. You are ambitious and
hard working. However, you don't like to compete, rather avoiding confrontations
unless you have to fight for realizing your goals and interests. You
think in rigid concepts. Although overtly curious you are not easily
influenced. You are a good communicator, radiating authority. At times
you can appear even commanding or intimidating. Being a free spirit
at heart you demand a lot of independence and you would love to be a
world-traveler. But most probably you have entangled yourself in complex
and unconventional relationships. These unconscious choices may originate
in your soul's urge to discover deep roots, to learn about commitment.
Take time to soar within your inner world. Use your power of visualization
and dream your utopia. Dreamers are the true creators. Once everything
real has been a dream. Allow your fantasies to take you off into a better
world. Your visionary gifts can bring hope and light to humanity. Always
give yourself the space needed to regenerate. You can only love others
as much as you are able to love yourself. You can't save the world,
but you can find your own fulfillment. Let go of possessions and ideas
which stand in your way, preventing you from living joyously. Drop the
heavy luggage, believe in your vision, and fly!
Challenge: You enjoy challenges of all kinds, they are provoking your intelligence
to become sharper. Being a perfectionist you can be over-critical and

a big issue. Only in a climate of mutual freedom love can really blossom.
Celebrate your aloneness. There is no higher value then freedom. Your
beloved will feel being supported, appreciating your non-possessiveness,
giving you back refined love.

other living beings by preying on the dead. Feeding off of completion
seems to have more appeal then interacting with others and maintaining
ongoing relationships. You have a need for solitude and a desire for
separation. You are a powerful being - representing the summit of creation.
You are highly attuned to your intuition - radiating light, grace and
trust. Standing at the precipice of higher dimensions of consciousness
you're getting ready to leap - gathering the necessary courage to challenge
the illusion of death. You are exposed to the heat of a merciless midday-sun;
consuming the decaying remnants of your past - burning off karma. Your
life is pregnant with deep meaning - and sure enough you take life very
serious, maybe even gravely. Withstanding the turbulent and tempestuous
climate, you have got hardened and suntanned. You live admits harsh
conditions. Hence, you either might have become philosophical or you
simply cry about it. Dwelling on such critical twilight zones you are
blessed to receive guidance from spirit. You are a very exposed person,
getting a lot of attention and absorbing much of other people's vibrations.
To find inner clarity you frequently need time alone - readjusting and
realigning. You are extroverted and outspoken, and you know how to lighten
your load with a great sense of humor, spiced with some sarcasm and
cynicism. You excel in giving beneficial advice, able to understand
the context of any given situation. You are an authority figure, often
struggling with other nominated father figures and bosses. You make
an excellent manager or executive. You are highly productive and you
know where the problems are hiding. You are very aware of your status
and social position. Afraid of falling from your rank you might get
overly self-conscious, loosing yourself in insecurities, fearing rejection.
You even might invite others to dominate you, giving the responsibility
for your life away. You are full of evaluations and judgements and you
easily are tempted to criticize.
Challenge: Become more forgiving - look through the eyes of your heart - love
yourself - discover tolerance and compassion for all beings. Stop comparing
and become more patient, estimating other beings' feelings. Meditate,
slow down the traffic within your mind - surrender to divine guidance.

incense reveals the "brains of heaven". Swirling fumes in
motion are releasing enchanting scents, representing the fluid, free-flowing
thoughts evolving to higher levels of understanding. You possess strong
mental abilities with the potential of clarity - but these energies
can also be overwhelming and confusing. You live on unstable ground,
constantly there are tremors perceptible, shaking your concepts and
beliefs. Change and movement are ever present in your life. Allow living
on shaky ground. Be in a flow and don't hang on too much on certain
ideas and comfort. You're a nomad - enjoy the freedom! Go where your
heart directs you. You are mentally very active, rationalizing and clever.
You could be called a mental acrobat, constantly shifting focal points
and foundations. Your ideas can be controversial or even extremist.
You are freedom loving and you will do radical things. Your personal
power roots in your confidence into your profound ideas. You are ahead
of the times and you seek positions of leadership. You are strong at
problem solving, explore uncharted territories and find answers to stubborn
problems. You are striving for independence, not tolerating being told
what to do. You don't have too much of a cooperative nature. You're
looking for a generally compliant and compromising mate.
have a good sense of humor - your sharp mind can penetrate human illusions.
You can be a comedian; loving good jokes and good belly laughter. This
is a great gift - reconciling you with life. If it hurts, laugh about
it; if it's scary, burst out roaring. Laughing is a knack. It breaks
the pattern of your strong mind, creating an opening, allowing you to
encounter strong emotions directly. You are brought back into this moment
- connected to the pulse of life - merging with the Now - the only real
thing there is.
Challenge: You tend to be overly mental, neglecting your own and others emotions.
This could lead to a point where poor choices are made. You only see
a small fraction of truth - don't think you know it all! Rather listen
to the subtle hints of cosmic truth: watch for coincidences and synchronicities
happening around you. Take time every day to sit in the Sun and feel
the Earth's energy nourishing you.

TO REFLECT - POWER: ENDLESSNESS - ESSENCE: ORDER
recognize the need for change and you are ready to move through temporary
conflict and disorder. To get access to deeper levels of understanding,
the outer shell has to be cracked open. You are enforcing transformation,
accepting a shattering, or even destruction, if needed.
a mirror you always are standing in between, reflecting everything;
but having a difficult time being seen by others, and an even more difficult
time seeing yourself. You're aware of both sides of the coin. You rise
above obstacles and personal limitations, approaching new accomplishments.
Main themes in your life are transcendence and enlightenment. You are
reflecting human pain and the consciousness of suffering. Loosing innate
unity, becoming aware of opposites is a painful process. But ultimately
you are integrating duality and experience the opposing sides as true complementaries. You can become a healer,
a curandero whose knife cuts away infection. You have the eyes to see
the spark of the good hiding within the bad, and you see the seed of
the bad hidden within the good. Your style is barren and unencumbered
by clutter - your crisp reflection cuts away illusion. Being around
others excites you strongly. You are a social being, full of high ideals,
a true philanthropist. But, being a mirror, you might not pay sufficient
attention to your own needs. Hence you tend to touch on extremes: either
totally sacrificing yourself for others, or - out of disappointment
- encapsulating yourself into vanity and self-absorption. Often, in
early life struggles and hardship are encountered. You might have got
acquainted with darkest assets of human nature. You have an incredibly
sharp mind and you understand even the tiniest detail of a chosen subject.
You are curious and open to learning. Very practical, as well as mechanically
and technically inclined, you exhibit good coordination. You are polite,
courteous and non-competitive and you can be compromising and self-sacrificing.
Seize the moment; good fortune, honor and riches could result from your
actions. Hesitation, insecurity, self-doubt and fear hold you back.
Don't be so hard on yourself, allow for committing all mistakes possible.
Life will be an incredible learning experience! Realize that you are
human - after all!
Challenge: Anger can be a pressure to ignite transformation. Neither hold
on to it as it may block your creative flow, nor get consumed by
it. Allow anger to be released and be completed with it. No longer than for a brief
moment you should maintain the energy of anger. You will find your own
power when you use your good social skills without loosing your center
- with the awareness how important it is to care for yourself first. It is all your own hands; you
can be a victim or a prosperous, enlightened being.

TO CATALYZE - POWER: SELF-GENERATION - ESSENCE: ENERGY
life is filled with lightning-quick transformation. You have taken on
tremendous lessons to sear limiting illusions away towards becoming
the totality of your being. Sometimes you might feel you're chasing
yourself - there is so little time to integrate before the next wave
of transformation washes ashore. The rules are changing constantly.
Release attachments and old concepts you once considered being truth.
You have come to the final wall between yourself and divine oneness.
Your intense feelings will propel you through into a new world. Just
be - allow the universe to catalyze. Welcome the storms, and breathe
the clean and crystal-clear air deep into your being. If you resist
transformation the storms will intensify. Existence is tremendously
compassionate, shaking you out of your deep trance of forgetfulness.
You are a warrior for truth. Go to the very bottom and break down the
walls of illusion. You are full of youthful curiosity, mentally active,
talkative and friendly. You have a good intuition and you know how to
improvise when in a tight jam. Although you greatly care for the welfare
of others your stormy energy is widely unappreciated. Rarely you receive
gratitude, most people still don't feel ready to be shaken out of their
dreams. So, be compassionate and patient, few are the daredevils appreciating
your frequency. Relationship is your primary focus. Being in love you
get intensely involved. You are exceptionally faithful and sexuality
is treated with great respect, being a sacred and spiritual experience.
Deeply devoted you anchor yourself in home and relationship. You feel
the need to realign energies that are out of balance; for outsiders
this might look like controlling your environment.
Challenge : Surrender to your extraordinary sensitivity. Be aware when you
escape from it, retreating in addictions of all kinds. You attract turmoil
into your life. Looked from a narrow point of view you might call it
bad luck. Change your perspective and you will recognize the blessings
in disguise. Existence is pushing you to find completion within yourself.
Meditation is the key to discover your innermost center - the eye of
the cyclone. Whatever you long for - bliss, peace, harmony - has always
been within you, waiting silently for your turn inward and know.

ACTION: TO ENLIGHTEN - POWER: UNIVERSAL FIRE - ESSENCE: LIFE
is the most sacred day within Mayan cosmology. This day signifies a
rainbow-bridge, linking the past with the future. Your destiny is becoming
a gate for higher consciousness descending into our material world.
You personify an intimate meeting of individual consciousness with both
the extremes - the collective unconscious and the collective superconscious.
Ahau depicts an open and receptive face. It is in the face that we recognize
an individual's sincerity - reflecting a lifelong journey, condensed
into this very moment. You are able to transcend time, comprehending
this totality of past and future as inherent parts of the eternal now.
You are a dreamer, opening doors to new visions for humanity. In your
enlightened and ultimate form you are an expression of divine light,
a presence of unconditional love. You are an incurable idealist with
high and unbending standards. With strong focus and commitment you work
towards actualizing your goals. You are stubborn and not willing to
compromise your ideals easily. If challenged you can become authoritative
or opinionated, defending your unusual perspective. Being friendly and
gracious you try to expose your good intentions, but often your refined
approach is in sharp contrast to the coarse and bold world around you.
At such moments you feel awkward and out of place. You are carrying
all these great visions of what life and relationship should be - high
expectations, unrealistic and hard to obtain. And only the unattainable
seems worth attaining! This can create a subtle neurosis in you, schizophrenia:
you are trying to reach the impossible. Knowing perfectly well that
it is not going to happen - it cannot happen in the very nature of things…But
you rather would die then accept less than perfection! This unwillingness
to compromise grants you frequent disappointment and disillusion.
Challenge: Your high vibration has a hard time slowing down to earthy levels
of reality. Embodying and grounding your intense frequency is your big
challenge. You appear to be up in the clouds, a mirage from another
star. Touch down to earth, become more human and face your own imperfections.
Celebrate your flaws, learn to laugh about them! Come down from the
world of ideas and explore your earthly senses. Feel your body from
within, allow life energy to move through you. Active meditation techniques
could be of great benefit. Take deep breaths and be nourished by the
Sun's warmth and light. Compassion will arise from within your heart.
No more only a mere idea, but a radiant presence. Then you can allow
others to have their own ideas and perspectives. True diversity will
reveal hidden perfection.
